i guess it is now official the babies are going to kindergarten. they passed preschool! time really flies, where, oh where did my babies go? they are definitely big kids now, as phelps would say.
tuesday before the little graduation program started i had 2 different teachers come up to me and tell me how sweet they are and how cute they looked. they also explained when they told watkins how nice he looked that he assured them his momma had packed him some "school clothes" and as soon as he got his "tificate" (certificate) he needed to change!
(can't believe our big girl is almost 11 and heading to middle school next year! she is turning into quite the "little miss preteen lady" and not the little girl of yesterday. where did my baby go ???)
i am thinking we definitely have us a little rOcKsTaR on our hands!
friday night we headed over to Jason and Naomi's for good food, friends, and music. the band started and wat pranced on the stage to join in! the musician did not seem to mind, and hey the crowd loved him!
our good friend Neil played at the arts festival on Saturday.
wat had no instrument, but he figured that Neil needed some help anyway.
that is right! KD had her first softball game last night, and her first time to bat she hit a HOMERUN!
i am sure the crowd went wild!
way 2 go - KD!
more shots of KD in action are sure to come, but last night i only got this picture. i hate to say it, but i missed the homerun and most of the game. i was playing in my second tennis match of the season (or ever!), and i promise there was nothing even equivalent to homerun in that tennis match. and there will be no action shots of me to come. promise.
on our monday off during easter break, I took the kiddos to lunch and bowl.
it is fun and cheap!
really cheap. $7.50 a person for lunch and 2 games of bowling.
although, we tuckered out after only one game.
LJ started out perfecting her throw (is that what you call it?), but then went to just rolling the ball down the ball ramp. She even was sweet and helped the babies, until they refused any help!
KD might be a natural! I mean LOOK at that swing and form! She even gets excited when she does good with jumps and even little cheers. take a look at the middle picture. you can tell she is saying "YES!" love it! Phelps had lots of fun too. Bowling is tough! Like making big decisions of picking just the right ball, you know it is VERY important even during bowling the ball must coordinate with your outfit! Well, if you have trouble waiting on your turn and you are getting bored u can always s.l.i.d.e. fun. fun. FUN! and Watkins had even more things you could do to pass time like...... dance to the music or even see how many ways you could pose and smile for your momma! these are surely to make you lAuGh out LOUD!
- being the wonderful soccer mom I am I did not do a mini cheer when I found out we would not be watching one of these all over numerous fields this weekend because a tournament was canceled. no, not me!
- how terrible it is that i witnessed a nice looking a mother buying and letting her young daughter eat one of these for her only lunch at a festival this weekend. goodness! you would never catch me doing that. no, not me!
- i am sorry to announce that i am not one of those few people in the world that can say they have seen all this 9 episodes of this season's "16 and pregnant episodes". no, not me!
- i do not know that the season finale is tomorrow night, and i would never be anxiously awaiting that. sorry u are confused. no, not me!
my sweet daddy kept all the kiddos when JD and i had to go to a funeral, even though my momma was sick. He kept them at the barn for the whole morning and part of the afternoon, but keeping them entertained was easy.
he has horses!
so they just rode and rode, as papa led them around and around for hours.
told you he is SwEeT!
marganie got in on the fun when she went with me to pick them up.
and on our ride she filled me in on ALL the gossip.
